The monument to the victims of the Chernobyl catasprophe of 1986 stands in Red Square.
The monument in the form of a man defending the mankind from the nuclear threat has become a place of pilgrimage for those who remember the lessons of the not so distant Communist past.
There is a chapel behind it to honor those militiamen who fell fulfilling their duty.
The chapel is called St.George's Chapel.
